Being the proud parent of college age children gives you the opportunity for twice annual road trips with the possibility of a third if you go to parent’s weekend.My latest adventure involved a three-day trip from New York to St. Louis Missouri to drop my son off for his freshman year. Besides loading all of the items onthe schools to bring list I packed my Canon Rebel, Bogen Manfrotto tripod, 28-80mm, 75-300mm lenses and a list of possibilities for some good photos.The... continue reading

Do you think you got what it takes to take pictures of the fire?So far 327,000 hectares of fire has been reported across British Columbia in Canada. This translates into 155 active fires going on at one time. It is very difficult to get pictures of the blazes itself because nobody can get near the fire. Even at a distance the heat is so intense that it melts metal from vechiles and blows ashes the size of your hands that would feel like a hot pancake being thrown at you if it landed on your skin.... continue reading

I have been working with Dreamstime for years... and when I have begun, I haven´t thought that once I´ll have even 100 photos in photobank. It went really slowly. I learned and I tried to take photos better and better. And with practice grew up also acceptance of my photos into Dreamstime.Now I have around 200 new photos a month. And sometimes more. The photos are not best. I know that :). But I´m still working on to be better. In last three quarters I had acceptance ratio over 90 %... and... continue reading
